Created just fifteen days ago, Frankie Stein is psyched to trade her father's lonely formaldehyde-smelling basement lab for parties and friends. But with a student body totally freaked out by rumors of monsters stalking the halls, Frankie finds that life in the "normi" world can be rough for a chic freak like her.
She thinks she finds a friend in fellow new student Melody Carver--but can a normi be trusted with her big secret?
Why I chose this: I'd say that's fairly obvious. It's set in a high school, first of all, but it's also a fun twist on the typical story, as this is a school for the children of famous monsters. Doesn't get much more fun than that. As long as the rest of the book lives up to the prologue, I think it's a pretty safe bet that this is going to be a fun romp.
